Free iPhone pits premium brand against Android

Apple's iPhone 3GS model is more than 2 years old and shunned by gadget snobs. But it's turning into one of the company's bigger weapons against devices running Google's Android software this holiday season.

When Apple rolled out its new iPhone 4S on Oct. 4, it slashed the price of the 3GS model to zero - if it's purchased with a contract. The decision thrust the company into the free-phone market for the first time and will help the 3GS account for as much as 20 percent of iPhone sales this quarter, said Shaw Wu, an analyst with Sterne Agee in San Francisco.

"Apple can shovel them out by the millions," he said. "What free phone or even $50 phone is going to be more appealing to consumers than an iPhone 3GS?"
